Buried within Marvel Entertainment’s Q3 Earnings Report is this little nugget to boggle the mind:
Marvel Character Live Stage Projects
Spider-Man the Musical, Hello Entertainment/David Garfinkle, Martin McCallum, Marvel Entertainment, Sony Pictures Entertainment
In development/opening date to be determined; Julie Taymor director; music & lyrics by U2’s Bono and The Edge
Julie Taymor and U2 collaborating on a Spider-Man musical? I typically avoid Broadway like the plague, but this has all the marks of a truly must-see production (worst case: if only from a train-wreck perspective).
